Movies in the Park! The Community Foundation’s Emerging Leaders Council is presenting the movie Christopher Robin on Saturday, September 7 at Greenway Park.

In this heart warming movie the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and loveable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends Winne the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.

“We encourage you to pack up your chairs and blankets and gather your family to watch a movie under the stars on a giant screen,” said Kaiti Chandler, Chair of the Emerging Leaders Council. This month’s movie has a literacy theme – we will present a story time and help families apply for a library card starting at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a children’s book swap so kids are encourage to bring a storybook and swap it for another one they want to read.

These events are FREE to the public. The movies will start at dusk (about 8:30 p.m.)

Concessions from Hungry Hippie and Kona Ice along with popcorn and candy will also be available for purchase on site beginning at 7 p.m. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
